    Rose and Glenda and families,
    My prayers are with you and your families. My dad died in 2007 and I still miss him. I live next door to my mother and can still see the spot(funny no grass will grow there) where he parked his pick-up truck. Cherish the memories.
    God’s blessings,
    Sheila Rose Tyler

    I am Wiley’s son.I was born April 7th 1973. I never really knew him or if he was even my dad when I was a kid growing up. My mom Annette Fowler raised me on her own.She had told me he may be my dad when I was little. But it wasn’t till I was about 26 yo we had finally met. My Dad Wiley n I decided to take the dna test just to be sure. When the results came back, we were both very pleased to find out Wiley was in fact my father. As I got to know him. I grew closer and closer to him. We had many things in common. Wiley was a wonderful caring man. I only wish I could have gotten to spend even more time with him before he passed.
